Hello, everyone, and thanks for joining me again. I just returned from MileHiCon in the beautiful city of Denver and what a weekend it was. met lots of new fans who have boarded the Fractured Time train. Book sales always help keep the train rolling. I had some really cool panels with interesting authors including a Saturday night panel on Horror Movies, moderated by new friend Tom Fowler. The programming is outstanding and very detailed. Kudos to Rose Beetum for a great job. Gyn and Scott did a fantastic job with the dealers room including juggling to maximize the number of dealers comfortably in the hall. I’m hoping to return next year to join them once again. The Hyatt Tech Regency was also one of the highlights of the weekend. They earned a four star review from me. Everything from the service to the food was out of this world. Coming up next, I’ll be at the Tucson Comicon for a one day appearance on November 7th while I try to spend the balance of my trip in Phoenix, relaxing and finishing Queen of Pain.
On a different note: somehow the first editions of my Fractured Time series have appeared on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. These editions are no longer available and I’m still trying to resolve why this happened and how to undo it. For those of you looking to purchase copies, you can email me direct and place Fractured Time in the subject line. Thanks for your patience on this matter.
Nothing new to report on the screenplay front other than lots of interest, requests for material, and pitches which isn’t bad, but no deals yet. I have high hopes for my newest script, Space Truckers, which has generated more excitement in a short time than the others. I’m looking forward to finishing Queen of Pain so I can return to screenwriting as I have several ideas I’d like to convert. So much too do and not enough time to do it. We’ll keep this edition brief as I don’t have much more to tell than this. Join me again soon for more information on upcoming trips, projects, and news. Have a safe and happy Halloween. Thanks.

Hello, everyone. Welcome back to another Author’s Corner with me, your host. I’m close to finishing Queen of Pain, the sequel to Princess Pain. I’ve been really squeezed for time over the last three months, making it difficult to get my writing done. However, I am getting close. Needless to say, I do have a few appearances coming up. On October 23-25th, I’ll be in Denver for MileHiCon. I do have a table in the dealers’ room and will be doing panels as well. After that, I’ll be in Tucson for a one day appearance at Tucson Comicon on November 7th. Look for me at the AZ Publishing (my publisher) table. My next stop won’t be until after the holidays in Williamsburg, Virginia on January 15th for Marscon. I want to make sure I finish Queen of Pain and a short story for the sequel TV Gods – Summer Programming as well.
This month, my new script Space Truckers is being pitched to a producer in Los Angeles. It’s a fun script where corporate greed is the focus in a sci-fi environment, ripe with aliens and angry ex-spouses. Fingers crossed on this one. No news on the others which are under consideration. As I’ve often mentioned, it’s a fickle business that requires a lot of patience. Join me again soon for an update and hopefully some breaking news on the scripts. Happy Halloween and enjoy a cool fall season.
